SMS: Nice piece of social engineering

This morning, I received on my cellular the following SMS (translated from French):

Info: This caller tried to call you at 09:47 without leaving a message. Unknown Number in your directory > Call the 0899190721 to identify him

Obviously, this number will be surcharged. How many gullible people will fall in this trap?

It is a nice piece of social engineering. The caller has not left a message. You may want to know who called and why he called. They give a solution to answer these questions… Bingo.

The attack would have been even better if you would have had a failed call just before.

The scammers are really very creative!
